Rosettes Just Because

I made three similar cards for friends at work using my new Tim Holtz Rosette Die. Soooooo much easier than scoring every 1/4" for 12" by hand and folding! The die cuts and pre-scores all of the segments. Again, very easy to use.

I also experimented with die-cutting some beautiful rosette trim that I had purchased for KarlaS001 's Etsy shop. I pulled the wire that was around the edges out of it and simply cut the butterfly. I die cut the same butterfly out of chipboard to keep it from flopping around on top of the paper rosette. The rosette trim is GORGEOUS! If you haven't gotten any, you should! Looks strikingly similar to the same butterfly by Prima and Recollections, but much less expensive.

Also, check out my Etsy shop. I have a bunch of stamps for sale and hope to be listing some die cut rosette butterflies in various colors along with die cut felt, chipboard and cork.
